Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Cardinal has escaped the virus that ravaged his town, leaving its victims alive but without their memories. Choosing to remain in the quarantined zone, he cares for a group of orphaned kids in a mountain camp with the help of the former brutal school bully, now transformed by the virus into his best friend. But then a strong-willed and mysterious young woman appears, and the closed-off world Cardinal has created begins to crumble.

A thrilling, fast-paced work of speculative fiction for teens from a best-selling author, Black River Falls is an unforgettable story about survival, identity, and family.

Not as good as his other YA books.

I was really looking forward to this book, because I loved Darkest Path. Unfortunately, there was a lot less action in this one. Lots of psychological stuff that I don't think will hold the interest of many middle school, male readers.
